%%** ** Pete White, in White gets this the Christmas episode, most, because of his eccentric style, his lucky [[PinkIsForSissies pink shirt]], and in because he [[HeterosexualLifePartners rooms with Billy Whelan]]. In ''Every Which Way But Zeus''.Zeus'', he's called out by, of all people, [[CampGay Shoreleave]]. When Billy's mother is introduced, Billy even has to confess to Pete that he ''told'' her they were gay—it was just easier than trying to explain two straight men living together.

* Due to some misunderstandings in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5985329/1/I-Still-Say-it-Looks-like-a-Nail I still Say it Looks like a Nail]]'', [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] thinks his uncle [[Franchise/StargateVerse Jack O'Neil]] is gay when he brings up military regulations preventing a relationship with someone named Sam. Later when Xander meets SG1, he thinks "Sam" and "Danny" are short for "Samuel" and "Danielle" rather than Samantha and Daniel, leading to further misunderstandings.

* Happens to DoctorStrange in the miniseries The Oath often enough to qualify as a running gag. First, random street toughs assume he and his friend and servant Wong are a gay couple, then Night Nurse seems to assume that Wong calling Stephen 'master' is sexual in nature (alluded to by her remark about his being unable to pass comment on 'other people's fetishes'. ''[[RuleOfThree Then]]'' Reginald Pavlish, a would-be patient of Strange's in his last days as an [[DrJerk arrogant young surgeon]] offers 'something else' to repay Strange, in what reads very nearly as an inverted ScarpiaUltimatum (Strange turns him down anyway.)

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'''s Kat has been mistaken for gay by Paz, thanks to a conversation in which Kat extolled Paz's virtues. For the record, Kat has actually ''had'' a boyfriend, even if he did turn into a bird and Paz is getting over the shock of finding that her crush has a crush on ''Chang'e'', of all people. In the next chapter she's wearing a flower in her hair, apparently in an attempt to seem more girly. And then [[spoiler: [[BiTheWay they decide to give a relationship a try]]]]

** Bill Dauterive spends an episode purposely being mistaken for gay much like one of the examples above, as the trendy salon he is hired by only employs women and gay men. Also played...* ahem* ...straight in another episode where Peggy thinks her hairdresser is gay, but actually has a wife and kids.
** Also used to explain Dale's naivete about [[spoiler:Nancy and John Redcorn's affair (Dale is convinced that John is gay).]]

Also played...* ahem* ...men, thinking straight in another episode where Peggy men simply don't have what it takes to be good hairstylists. He blows his cover when an extremely attractive female customer flirts heavily with him and says it's a shame he's gay. Of course, when he "comes out" to her (loud enough for the whole salon to hear), she immediately becomes disgusted with him (and herself, for letting a straight man style her hair).

In fact, this actually started when Redcorn was about to confess to the affair out of guilt but was stopped from doing so by Hank.

* Glenn Erickson, author of the DVD Savant film column, once [[http://www.dvdtalk.com/dvdsavant/s665hour.html shared an anecdote]] that while attending UCLA, he started receiving mail praising his stand on gay rights. Turns out another Glenn Erickson, a member of the Gay Student Union, had written such an article for ''The Daily Bruin''. Erickson considered writing a clarification, but decided he'd rather be mistaken for gay than mistaken for a homophobe.

* KT Tunstall was mistaken for gay after her Eye To The Telescope album; many of the songs are ambiguous in this regard, and the cover art depicts her wearing a pair of rainbow suspenders. Despite her statements to the contrary, [[MisaimedFandom many people think she's just in the closet.]]
